Update: according to the My Disney Experience App, Santa Duffy is appearing only through December 31.
This is not a drill, Santa Duffy is greeting regular park guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! He is currently in It’s a Wonderful Shop, which is where Santa was greeting earlier this holiday season. From what I’ve heard, guests are giving a phone number and will receive a text when it’s their turn. There’s no word on whether or not Duffy the Disney Bear will become a permanent meet and greet at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. He has been added to the My Disney Experience App, so I hope that’s a good sign. Duffy has been gone from Epcot for years, and was quite popular at Disney Jollywood Nights.
